·3-min read

Adele has received four nominations for the upcoming BRIT Awards.
The 33-year-old singer has been nominated in the Album of the Year, Artist of the Year, Song of the Year and Best pop/R&B categories after releasing her long-awaited new album '30' in November.
The London-born star is joined on four nominations by Dave, Ed Sheeran, and Little Simz.
Dave is in contention for the Best hip-hop/grime/rap, Song of the Year, Artist of the Year and Album of the Year gongs.
Ed, 30 - who released his latest album, '=', in October - has also been nominated for the Album of the Year, Artist of the Year and Song of the Year accolades, as well as the Best pop/R&B gong.
Little Simz is up for the Best hip-hop/grime/rap, Album of the Year, Artist of the Year and Best New Artist awards.
Meanwhile, the Best International Artist accolade will be contested by Billie Eilish, Doja Cat, Lil Nas X, Olivia Rodrigo and Taylor Swift.
Olivia, 18 - who released her debut album, 'SOUR', in May - has enjoyed a meteoric rise this year, and she's also been nominated for the Best International Song award.
Elsewhere, the Best International Group gong will go to one of Abba, BTS, Maneskin - who won the Eurovision Song Contest earlier this year - Silk Sonic and War On Drugs.
Holly Humberstone has already been announced as the winner of the coveted Rising Star award, following in the footsteps of artists such as Adele and Sam Smith.
The upcoming ceremony will feature a new selection of gender-neutral categories, after the organisers decided to scrap the best male and female categories and create a broader group of nominees.
The event will be hosted by Maya Jama, Mo Gilligan and Clara Amfo, and will be staged at The O2 Arena in London on February 8.
